We discovered the Olive Tree by chance when we selected Mediterranean Restaurants on the GPS after a day of sightseeing on Cape Breton, and it turned out to have some of the best and most reasonably priced Greek food we’d ever had (an appetizer, 4 entrees, a desert and a litre of wine came to $133.35 CAD). The unassuming frontage... More

I would actually go for the roasted potatoes alone. Small restaurant, but very busy. Reserve a table. Such cozy atmosphere and décor. Amazing! Also has a HUGE menu but don't be afraid to try the special cause I did and in no way regret!

The Olive Tree Bistro is wonderful and delicious, don't get me wrong. Everytime I have eaten here, its been just great with a vast choice of delicious mediterranean fare..... BUT....their pizza is not good! Sorry, but when you do something well, just stick to it. They did pizza before and stopped and now they are doing pizza again. DEFINITELY visit... More

After spending two nights in Halifax and having underwhelming dinners ( except lunch on boardwalk) we moved on to Sydney. Tired and hungry we checked trip advisor for inspiration. Up came the olive tree #1. When we got there the small place was just about full. Do you have reservations we were asked. Gerard looked at our faces and said... More

This is a mid or up scale restaurant with rather decent prices. I'm a picky eater but they always have something for me to eat. It's a perfect place for a date since it's slightly dim and cozy. Would be nice with a few more non ethic foods to choose from. But I would say almost anyone would find one... More

Although unassuming from the outside, this little restaurant will leave you impressed by the time you leave. I eat at this restaurant for quick "work buddy" lunches and for special occasion evening out meals. Their lunches are always well thought out and the variety of lunch specials is always a surprise. If you're not totally stuffed by your main entree,... More

The food here is great. I have never seen or heard anyone disappointed with their food, quite the contrary. The trouble is that this restaurant is small and under staffed. Granted that the servers are quite nice, they are sadly spread too thin when things get busy and the service suffers. If you are willing to wait a painfully long... More
